One of the most memorable shoots I’ve had was when I filmed Brad Geary. In the process of making TRWE, I’m accustomed to many kinds of hard work and putting in long hours to get it all done, but I found the way Brad used his time and talents to the utmost really impressive! He was a student at the United States Military Academy at West Point, which requires its student soldiers to maintain a high standard of academic and physical excellence. Brad was not content with that challenge, though, and set himself to earn the Green Beret and serve with the Army’s Special Forces-which called for an even higher level of physical training.
On top of that, he was taking physics and some very tough science courses to prepare for a career in the sciences after his term in the military. As if that wasn’t enough, he was one of the top swimmers on the West Point swim team! Add to this the time he spent in his own devotions and in finding ways to help others, and we see an all-around overcomer who is truly one of God’s standard-bearers…Brad Geary has the real winning edge!
Now for the rest of the story: Brad has risen to the rank of Captain and is currently the Commander of the Naval Special Warfare Command in Coronado, CA where he’s in charge of the Navy SEAL BUD/s training pipeline.
Brad’s received two coveted awards in the last year, which are highlighted in this article: https://www.sandboxx.us/blog/navy-seal-officer-wins-stockdale-award-for-leadership/
